Why Isn't Anything On Netflix?

Am I the only one noticing this? I've got Netflix, and often really want to watch nostalgic stuff, or otherwise recent stuff. I've checked for many things. Anything from Bill and Ted? Not there. The South Park regular TV show? Not there. Pretty much anything from Monty Python? Not there. Back to the Future series? Not there. The Star Wars Movies? Not there. The Simpsons? Not there.

I am stunned at this lack of content. They wonder why they don't get many subscribers for instant streaming? This is why. It's not just Netflix either. Apparently, out of Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, and Netflix Instant, Netflix has the most content. I honestly doubt that many of the people who pirate movies and television wouldn't be if Netflix actually had some of these things. It's almost as if Netflix has some sort of personal vendetta against quality media. Of course, Netflix does have many good television shows and movies, like Doctor Who, Family Guy, The Walking Dead, etc. etc. Still, the fact that the things they don't have are major titles the many people want to watch startles me. I cannot fathom what is going on in the minds of the supervisors of Netflix.

Yeah, it sucks.

They used to have MST3k episodes, but those disappeared a while ago.

They have Problem Solverz, Sharknado, and Spaceballs.

I'm good with that.

If you want to watch something good on Netflix watch Archer...before that gets removed.

The South Park regular TV show?

You do know that the creators put all the episodes online for free, right?

It isn't as though Netflix specifically wants some of these movies and shows and not others. They just can't always license everything while keeping the beloved monthly fee of $7.99. This video and the article that goes with it should provide a brief explanation as to why not every popular movie and TV show in the world is available for instant streaming.

I can't watch MLP on netflix unless i connect to america networks in order to watch them, and EQG is on british netflix meaning my sister saw the movie before the show. (and there's a lot of **** on both versions but british netflix is lacking too much)

The video still doesn't explain why Netflix doesn't have The Simpsons, South Park, Star Wars, or Back To The Future.
